MUSIC NEWS: Gin Wigmore Releases New Single ‘Feels Like Me’
Gin Wigmore has released her new single Feels Like Me, which aims to bring awareness to Asian Elephants and the crisis that they face in their rapidly declining population. The track is the second in a series that Wigmore is releasing this year, following previous single Hangover Halo.
“Asian elephants are endangered. It is presumed that less than 35,000 are left in the wild today. They are killed at a rate of around 100 per day, every day,” she explains. “Asian Elephants are poisoned or shot due to interference with human settlements and/or agricultural production that has cut off their ancient migratory routes and caused severe forest devastation to their natural habitats. In addition, entire herds are slaughtered by poachers for their meat, skin and ivory tusks. This issue demands more awareness and immediate action. With this single, I will be urging listeners to “Play Your Part” by making a public pledge as to what they will personally do for Asian Elephants, so that these iconic animals can continue to be a part of this wonderful world. Feels Like Me will play its part by sponsoring Chhouk, a baby Asian Elephant, who is being helped by Wildlife Alliance to get back into the wild again after losing his foot in a poachers snare and becoming gravely ill from infection.”
“Feels Like Me is one of those songs. It’s a walking-on-rainbows-and-sunshine type of song,” Wigmore adds. “This was a really fun track to write too, it felt light and not overly heady which was a welcomed departure from the usual headspace I get into with songwriting. I’ve always wanted to write a song that had an abundance of hope and good feels.”
